When Are My Hunting and Fishing Privileges Suspended
Hunting and fishing privileges in Colorado can be suspended whenever an individual receives 20 or more points in any five year period. Additionally, whenever an individual is convicted of, or pleads guilty to, a crime committed while hunting or fishing, that individual is automatically called to a hearing with the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission Hearing Officer in order to review their hunting and fishing privileges and determine a suspension. This suspension, if you are given one, is eligible for appeal.

How Can I Prevent My License Being Suspended?
To quote every football coach ever, "The best offense is a good defense." This is true when it comes to your hunting and fishing license defense in Colorado as well. The best way to keep from losing those privileges, is to never have it be an issue in the first place. Things happen sometimes, and we find ourselves facing charges that may cause us to lose our license privileges. However, consulting with an attorney to help either lessen those charges or have them dismissed entirely is a the best case scenario. For instance, if you were charged with multiple crimes under the Hunting and Fishing regulations in Colorado, your total point assessment may be anywhere from 20 to 65 points or higher. Working with an attorney before you plead guilty to those charges may help you get those points reduced so you can avoid a hearing with the commission altogether. However, even if you do find yourself faced with a hearing, you can still put your best foot forward to avoid losing your license privileges.
The Wildlife Commission Hearing Officer is a reasonable person and understands that sometimes mistakes happen, and while punishment may be appropriate in certain circumstances, not all offenses should be punished equally. You will have an opportunity at the commission hearing to make a statement and explain what happened while on the record with the officer. However, you still want to be careful when making the statement to ensure that you are indeed accepting responsibility for the right mistakes. Having an attorney help prepare your defense in this hearing can be beneficial when you face possible loss of hunting and fishing license privileges.
what is a Flat Fee Attorney?
An attorney who works on a flat fee rate means that you will not be charged by the hour. Most clients enjoy this arrangement because they do not have to fret about what it will cost to call and talk with their attorney, or worry about receiving an inflated bill at the end of their case. Nate Gilbert is an attorney who works on flat fee rates for some cases, including Parks and Wildlife Commission Hearing Defense, Evictions, and Residential Leasing.
